About GLBP Funded Projects in Ohio

To address erosion and sedimentation problems, since 1991 the Great Lakes Basin Program has supported 12 soil erosion and sediment control projects in Ohio totaling $211,423, with an additional $298,693 being leveraged from non-federal sources.

Agricultural, streambank, and urban erosion have been the focus of the demonstration and technical assistance projects awarded in Ohio. About 2,400 acres are under some form of soil erosion and sediment control, thereby preventing the loss of over 5,500 tons of soil annually, along with more than 4 tons of phosphorus and one ton of nitrogen.

Public information and education programs have also been an important component of the Ohio effort, targeting key stakeholders groups such as developers, landowners, school children and government agency personnel. Projects have used newspapers, teacher's guides, workshops, professional journals, and newsletters as the vehicles for disseminating effective soil erosion and sediment control information. By these methods, over 30,000 people have been reached through Ohio projects.
